Shah Rukh Khan will extend financial help to injured RA.One animator Charu Khandal through Red Chillies. The actor visited her at the hospital after he returned from YRF's London schedule.

Earlier, the production house was unable to do so, as Khandal was not a contractual employee.

SRK said he will pray for her recovery. "Yeah, it's very unfortunate. I have been in touch with the office. I will go and take a look at her. I will pray that Allah makes her alright soon," the 46-year-old had told reporters at the airport.

When asked about this, Charu's sister Ritu says, "I can't comment on this right now, but I would like to thank the doctors and Red Chillies Entertainment. From the time the acccident has happened, somebody or the other from the company is always by my sister's side. Moral support is also a big thing."

Charu is battling for life after a speeding car, with an allegedly drunk driver at the wheel, rammed into the autorickshaw in which she was travelling with her sister and a friend. The 26-year-old suffered multiple fractures and injuries to her spinal cord in the accident early Sunday.

She also underwent her first surgery on Thursday, which was successful.
